No Smoking

There had been no smoking in Workshop for about 30 years now. No alcohol, no music, no dancing, no sexual activity of any kind and bizarrely no Swiss cheese fondue. Those that would dare to flounce the laws tended to go a bit missing shortly thereafter.

To suggest that people had objected to these strange rules would be to put it lightly. To say that this was, without a doubt, the reason that 100% of the village had moved on to pastures new would be very astute.

Still, Lord Jonah Lincoln preferred it that way.
He never did like people.

      It’s wrong I know, but reading your comment certain words pop out. I now can’t shake the words “Sex cheese”.

      I apologise.

    no…. i love cheese! great original take on the photo, and Lord Jonah Lincoln is an interesting (though not very likeable) character ๐Ÿ™‚

    Monsieur Binks,
    it sounds like Lord Lincoln found the perfect formula for driving people away. I’d think there would be easier ways to be by yourself, but I guess everyone needs a hobby. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Reminds me of Monty Python, when the guy keeps interrupting the sketches and saying “Stop this! You’re being SILLY!”
    I’m not writing this week, but I’d love it if you’d drop by my blog for a second anyway, I posted a big announcement today.
